Earnestly Remembering



I was reading Deuteronomy 7, 8, and 9 yesterday and was soaking it up! I shared it with Brian and the children last night. We were in awe of what the Lord has done in our family, but more dramatically in my health. (here are the links about my healing)

These verses so struck me.

"You shall not be afraid of them, but remember [earnestly] what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt,

The great trials which your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand and the outstretched arm by which the Lord your God brought you . . ." (Deut. 7:18-19)

It was with signs and wonders and the mighty outstretched arm that the Lord brought me out of my illness and darkness. My enemies were too big for me. There was nothing 'I' could do to bring healing to my body and mind. No diet. No amount of green smoothies. None of the thousands of supplements I took. Not one of the well over $10,000 could bring healing.


Know, recognize, and understand therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, Who keeps covenant and steadfast love and mercy with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations (Deut. 7:9)

We marvelled at all He has done. We recounted how He delivered the Israelites with an awesome display of His power and how He did the same in my life. We joked about how He could have snuck the Israelites out one by one, but instead it was a miraculous deliverance. He also could have chosen to heal me slowly, over time, (which, by the way, is no less awesome and powerful) but for some reason He chose to heal and deliver me with an awesome display of His power and might, and with an outstretched arm.

We marvel, we revel, we praise and most of all we earnestly remember!


We will not hide them from their children, but we will tell to the generation to come the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the wonderful works that He has performed. (Ps. 78:4)


(We had lots of errands to run last night, so we were going to miss our devotion time when we remembered we have a bible in the van! I highly suggest you have bible in your vehicle, you don't ever have to miss devotions again. And, they are all tied down, I mean buckled;-)

I find this post so true and can totally relate.

I love how you said:
"My enemies were too big for me. There was nothing 'I' could do to bring healing to my body and mind."

God is our healer!

Thanks for the encouragement ;)

Ditto to what Josh said - you put it perfectly: "My enemies were too big for me..." The wonder and might and power of the Lord is too incredible for words!

Yes! I love this:
"It was with signs and wonders and the mighty outstretched arm that the Lord brought me out of my illness and darkness. My enemies were too big for me. There was nothing 'I' could do to bring healing to my body and mind. No diet. No amount of green smoothies. None of the thousands of supplements I took. Not one of the well over $10,000 could bring healing."

It encourages me for my own healing. xo
